We only stayed one night so can't comment on everything. We got lucky because they had a full house that day, which means we ended up getting a house on our own a bit further down the road, complete with kitchen, tv, dining-room and ensuite double room. Of course, everything was perfect! Maybe just the strange smell coming from the toilet paper so dont' use it to blow your nose :-) Very friendly staff, small swimming pool and free wifi. We recommend it!
Not the greatest stay for us at this hostel which provides only the bare minimum. The kitchen is poorly equipped and we found a live cockroach in a drawer one day. The cleaners did there best but the other guests and staff left the kitchen unclean which didn't help! There was a resident drunk there too which wasn't a nice thing when he was staggering about in the afternoon. On our first night we also heard someone trying to get in to our dorm before being removed by the security guard.
